Hidden Gem! I’ve passed Grazie thousands of times but never bothered to stop by or see what the restaurant is about. After seeing sooo many good reviews I had to stop by and get my Italian fix on a Saturday night. The restaurant is right next to Men’s Warehouse in the Southcenter area by all the shopping and parking was extremely easy.
Once inside the restaurant was busy! Lightly dimmed it, romantic decor, although small it felt “homey”! When I made my reservation you have an option of seating (standard, counter, high top), I opted for standard seating not knowing where the high top or counter tables were located but the high top tables are located in a small bar like section right when you entry and the counter seating is directly in front of the chefs preparing your food - next time I’ll opt for counter seating!
Service was great and speedy, the menu was extensive and everything looked amazing; I had the Cannelloni and my bf had the Rack of Lamb both were flavorful and delicious! After your meal the server comes out with the “dessert menu” literally a tray displaying all of the dessert they have and you simply pick the dessert you’d like and viola in a couple minutes it comes out! I had the tiramisu which has a strong espresso taste but I love espresso so it was perfect for me!
Will definitely be back next time!

I've been there before, but usually for pasta. We all ordered off their daily special menu. I was told the rack of lamb was delish. I had a seafood medley with halibut, calimari, prawns served with pasta that was very flavorful. And the dessert??? Yummm! There was a key lime w white chocolate that was light and very tasty, and I had a berry tart...also very good.
I will be back!

The filet gorgonzola never fails to impress. It was delicious if a bit small. The serving of carrots and beans was generous and very well prepared. We started with caprese. Seems that every time we are they they have changed up the preparation. It was all good. The service was excellent and not invasive on our conversation.

When I made the reservation it asked what occasion & I marked birthday. There was NO acknowledgement for a birthday so we sang our own song & bought our own desserts. A disappointment as we were trying to make a fun outing for our son's girlfriend. The salmon was so-so & the spinach was like big globs of yuk! I finally just pulled it out of my pasta. The staff was nice & the service was good. It was able to accommodate gluten free also. I would not go back however! Too many really good restaurants out there to pick from.

Cant say enough great things about this place. Excellence its the commonality across service, ambiance, food and wine selection. They make sure you enjoy your dinner, regardless or a every day dinner or a special occasion. Whenever crazing delicious Italian food, this is the place to go.

Been coming to Grazie”s for years, either with or without our kids. Great food, large portions, authentic Italian. The friendly Staff is ultra efficient in getting people seated. Service is very fast. Best rack of lamb in town! Great desserts. Make a reservation unless just for 2. Everyone looking for a great, fillings yet excellent quality Italian meal knows about this gem!

Last Sunday the 5 of us went to dinner at Grazie.
If I have any criticism it would be there sign was very small so it was hard to find.
We each ordered different entrees and we each thought there was too much salt used.
Also, It would be nice to have the small shrimp used in the entrees fresh and not frozen.
We would all definetely try Grazies' again.

Finding the place is challenging, it's in a strip mall, next to a Men's wearhouse, and a Car-Toys. then the sign is partly burned out.
this might discourage you from going, don't let it. The food was great, the wine selection is good, the service was above average.

We had a table of 6 and were seated promptly. The place is a bit noisy and cramped. Service was very good. We were well attended and our antipasti and drinks came fairly quickly. The antipasti were for 2-4 people so we got two, which turned out to be too much (we took some home). Nice variety and good quality! The entree's were very good as were the desserts. All in all, a quite enjoyable evening.

This place is great for small groups and romantic meals. From the outside near shopping it does not look like a high quality restaurant but inside you will be surprised. The food was top quality with enough variety for people with different diets. We truly enjoyed our visit. Make a reservation.

Once again, a stellar experience at this fine restaurant. I took a client from Seattle here for lunch recently, and a month or so later we returned, as it's now one of his favorite places. My husband and I went on New Year's Eve, and despite the very busy night, service was excellent, and the food was delicious, as always. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant we have, on the south end.

Gracie’s is always excellent. We have been going there for more than 5 years. We have never been disappointed in the food or service. The food is always fresh and prepared authentic and delicious. The staff are very knowledgeable on the food and wine. They may not know your name but they treat you like family every time.

This Italian restaurant has the best Italian food that I have found in the United States. And I came to find out why this company sends their staff to Italy twice a year to train, the Ambiance is fantastic the food is authentic and delicious I've tried multiple things and have never been disappointed! It's a perfect place for a business meeting or a date or just a get-together With Friends impressive wines and delicious food! I recommend making a reservation as they are very popular!
